Springtime can be a challenging time for those of us living in the southwest.
The heat and humidity are intense and the wind can change the color of the flowers.
But if you have a sunny window to enjoy the sun and fresh air, you will find the best part of spring is in your yard.
There are plenty of flower plants and trees to choose from.
In some cases, you might not even know what they are, because they are not on your property.
But they are all beautiful and worth visiting.
Here are some of the best and the worst parts to visit in Arizona.
